Innovative solar at its awesome best!
262,400 solar cells power the International Space Station, which orbits the earth at 4.76 miles/s. The solar arrays cover more than half a football field, and can generate 120 KW of power. While in sunlight, the station diverts 60% of the electricity generated to the batteries, which must support the station while it’s not in view of the sun.
